Focus Area
Comments
Fastball:Wallach threw his fastball in the 88-92 mph range in this outing.
Fastball movement:It's good, but not outstanding. He's got some arm-side, two-seam life.
Slider:He throws it 78-83 mph and it has the chance to be a plus pitch.
Changeup:It's solid-average, 79-81 mph, and he's got a good feel for it.
Control:Average now, but projects as plus as he focuses on pitching full-time.
Poise:He's outsanding on the mound -- polished and mature.
Physical Description:Wallach has a good pitcher's body, with a high waist, broad shoulders and long, gangly levers.
Medical Update:Healthy.
Strengths:He's got an effortless delivery and easy motion; the ball comes naturally out of his hand. He seemed to improve every time he was on the mound.
Weaknesses:He hasn't consistently done it at a higher level, so there's not as much track record to go on.
Summary:Wallach is the son of former big-leaguer Tim Wallach and the bloodlines certainly won't hurt. Neither will his performance on the mound as he led Orange Coast JC to the California state title. He got better each time out, with a free-and-easy delivery and the chance to throw three pitches that grade out as average or better. A two-way player in junior college, he could take off even more when he's focusing on pitching only. There was plenty of heat on him as his season wore on and he could hear his name called on that first night of the Draft.
